With an advancement in both computing architectures and process technology,
many-core architectures are going to have hundreds of cores into a single
chip.  It is expected that the integration become in the order of thousand
cores within 2020 as stated by the International Technology Roadmap for
Semiconductors, which benefits some emerging applications such as machine
learning engine design. By increasing the number of processing elements
(PEs) in System-on-Chip (SoC), there is a need for an efficient, scalable
and reliable communication infrastructure. As technology geometries shrink
to the deep submicron regime, the communication delay and power consumption
of global interconnections become the major bottleneck. The Network-on-Chip
(NoC) design paradigm, based on a modular packet-switched mechanism, can
address many of the on-chip communication issues such as performance
limitations of long interconnects, and integration of large number of PEs
on a chip. Techniques and architectures are needed for efficiently design
and optimize NoC and evaluate it at the network or system level. NoCs are
also prone to failure where techniques are required to tolerate, verify and
test. In addition, new technologies are emerging as wireless, optical, and
RF and for 2.5D and 3D packages.
The goal of NoCArc is to provide a forum for researchers to present and
discuss innovative ideas and solutions related to design and implementation
of multi-core systems on chip. The workshop will focus on issues related to
design, analysis and testing of on-chip networks.
